I don't have the list or facts but I think it'd be fair none of the players on the UMaine roster are even top 10 in terms of best ever to play HS ball in this state.



SeaDogsFan: Sorry, but Cindy Blodgett was not even the greatest high school basketball womens player ever. Lisa Blaze of Westbrook set the standard for that being the first Maine High School Girls player BY WINNING 4 CONSECUTIVE STATE A CHAMPIONSHIPS IN THE EARLY 80'S at Westbrook and then became a star on a National Womens NCAA D1 Champion at Old Dominion.

How many NCAA Tournament Games did Blodgett ever win?????????? Let alone a national championship.

P.S. Westbrooks four year record from 1978-81 was 68-2, Lawrences four year record in the 1991-94 was 68-4. Westbrook was seeded number 1 each year they won their 4 consecutive State A Championships and Lawrence was seeded number 1 three years but the last year in 1994 they were seeded 2nd.

Know your history SeaDogFan!!!!!!!

UMaine Men's Basketball Coaches message to UMaine Mens Fans, "WERE VERY, VERY, CLOSE" WORDS SOUNDS LIKE THE WORD "ALMOST" TO ME. AND "ALMOST" ONLY COUNTS IN HORSESHOES AND HAND GRENADES NOT IN SUCCESSFUL BASKETBALL PROGRAMS.

Especially after back to back seasons of 7-23 and 9-21 and finishing 8th in the conference and being eliminated in the 8 vs. 9 playin game by the 9th place team two seasons in a row.

Early 80s is before my time. That's why you're here Cim - to give us first-hand accounts of sports in the 1880s :)

Coach: Lisa Blaze was ahead of her time as a player in the 80's. She set the standard for both boys and girls basketball as she played on four State Clas A State Championship Teams at Westbrook High School.

She then went to a big time college women's progarm OLd Dominion where she played on a Natiuonall NCAA Womens Division 1 Championship Team.

She accomplised more than any other boy or girl basketball player in the history of Maine High School Basketball.

She is kind of overlooked because this all happened in the 80's and she played in Western Maine.

She was a complete player as good a defender as she was an offensive machine.

She set the standard and it stills stands today as the best high scool and college layer to come out of Maine either boy or girl in what she accomplished as a player. 4 High school Champions in Class A and a National Womens Championship for a D1 Womens College Team, No one has ever come close to that as a player in/from Maine, boy or girl, man or woman!!!!!!!!!

Cook will not be coming back.....Cook left the team because he no longer wanted to play.

mainebbfan: Thanks that is what I thought but I was not 100 percent sure. Wonder why he no longer wanted to play. Maybe no inside game??????????????????

That means that they should have 4 full scholarships available, unless they give a partial or full one to Martin. he sure deserves it for working so hard as a walk on. Have they given one out already?????????
